Surgery on Tuesday

Sunday, August 21, 2011

Well it's almost here. I think I am ready.

For those who care to know, I am having a 3-level spinal fusion L3, L4, L5, S1.
My first back surgery and hopefully last.
I will be in the hospital 3-5 days and then hopefully rehab unit 1-2 weeks.

My sister is in town for a week to keep mom company.
I have wonderful friends who will help with the house and cats while I'm out.

Take care of yourselves and I will be back when I can.

And yeah-I lost 2 lbs this week! Diana
